A rich rogue nowadays is fit company for any gentleman; and the world, my dear, hath not such a contempt for roguery as you imagine.
Company, villainous company, hath been the spoil of me.
The ability to sign a check is the least reliable guide to a company's fitness.
For my own part, I would rather be in company with a dead man than with an absent one; for if the dead man gives me no pleasure, at least he shows me no contempt; whereas the absent one, silently indeed, but very plainly, tells me that he does not think me worth his attention.
By the by, if the English race had done nothing else, yet if they left the world the notion of a gentleman, they would have done a great service to mankind.
Hopkins, Gerard Manley
There is that maketh himself rich, yet hath nothing there is that maketh himself poor, yet hath great riches.
Bible, Proverbs, 4:7
To be rich nowadays merely means to possess a large number of poor objects.
Riches are a stronghold in the imagination of a rich man.
A sumptuous dwelling the rich man hath. And dainty is his repast; but remember that luxury's prodigal hand keeps the furnace of toil in blast.
Hewitt, Mary Elizabeth
If your riches are yours, why don't you take them with to the other world?
